I ordered new glasses from Zennioptical a couple of weeks ago and they arrived last night.  I bought a pink pair and these marvelous retro cat eyes.  They are over the top and I love love love them!

I've been MIA over the past several days because I've been sitting either on a soccer field or in a parking lot waiting for Kira's soccer practice to be over.  She had a game tonight too as well as practice, so I went to the game and Dave took her to practice.  Busy busy little girl!

Attempted J Crew

I love J Crew.  I love looking through their website and I squeal with glee everytime the style guide shows up in my mailbox.  However, whenever I attempt to replicate some of their casual, laid back looks, I fail miserably.  Case in point is today's look. I like these ugly pants.  I really really do, but they are super hard to match with any kind of top.  I started with this top;  tucked it in, tucked it out, half tucked it in and then decided I just looked stupid and went for the full tuck.  In the J Crew add that lured me in, the model was wearing a long sleeve white oxford with these pants, half tucked.  Well, that's freakin' great for the model, but it's close to 90 degrees outside and I'm not wearing long sleeves.  Even rolled up seems like way too much bulk.  Some people would have given up and changed pants, but I'm playing in a flute choir concert outside tonight and I wanted something light and airy to wear, so I'm not changing the pants.  I did change into an octopus t-shirt because nothing says flute choir more than an octopus.  That's just how I roll.

A Short Story

I wore shorts to work today.  Yes, yes I did. It's the one week of the year where we're allowed to do that.  It's Beach Week at work and I am celebrating in style!

Gingham Gapitist

One of the detriments to being slightly busty is occasionally you suffer from gapitist.  This blouse fits; in fact, it's a bit big on me, but if you move the wrong way, POP opens the blouse.  I'm sure everyone at work got a good eyeful today.

Gingham and Polka Dots

Today's outfit photos are actually from yesterday.  I didn't take pictures of what I was wearing this morning because honestly, I didn't feel like dealing with the trail of rainbow loom and marker stuff left strewn across the floor by my daughter last night (see above).  It was more of a mess than what I wanted to deal with.  She cleaned it up tonight, sort of, so I should be back in the game in the morning!

Gingham Belt

We've been battling a little bug in our household over the weekend, which started with Kira and ended with me.  We are all on the mend now!
